Definitely a delight for the fans of Tex Murphy. I was positively overwhelmed right from the start. Although I'm not so sure how this game would play for the uninitiated. This series works because of its fantastic yet quirky storytelling and Chris Jones. Mixing live video with 3d environments works at times, but destroys the experience then and again (like when you realize you don't see any human characters during actual gameplay). I for one would welcome a new Tex Murphy adventure anytime. But maybe it's time for a different approach, something more in the vein of Telltale's games.
I was fortunate to play earlier Tex Murphy games when they first came to the Mac many years ago. They were so ahead of their time. Today, this new episode is more nostalgic but still provides a challenge. I've played 3rd person games so much that when I went back to this 1st person game, I got a little nauseous from rotating around a bit too much. I'm slowing getting used to that. The humor and good voice-acting really makes a difference. Recommended.
